Whether you are working on the front lines caring for COVID-19 patients, or your practice has suffered a substantial loss of patients and income, or you are otherwise affected, the pandemic has brought much added stress for physicians. Here are several mental health resources:
Physician Support Line, 888-409-0141, offers free and confidential peer support to American physicians by creating a safe space to discuss immediate life stressors with volunteer psychiatrist colleagues. This service was launched by volunteer psychiatrists in March 2020 to help physicians cope with the stress of COVID-19.
